week. this was a case of identity gone wrong. this family has nothing to do with gangs. >> these -- guys came into our lives to destroy it. they destroyed my family. they killed my baby, and -- they killed part of my soul -- of my soul. too. >> reporter: what she barely mentions is that she was shot in the leg while trying to protect her children. her husband is still in the hospital. and while she is hurting from the physical pain, it is nothing in comparison to her raw emotion. she doesn't hide it in front of the cameras, because she has a message. >> i don't know where their parents were at. i don't know, but i -- i definitely -- have to say to their parents, to pay attention to the other kids if they have any. be involved in their kids' lives. pay attention to them.

the suspects and are offering a $25,000 reward. they say they already have a lot of the community to help them, and are hoping for more help. >> have they recovered weapons? >> yes, they have arrested two different people. and the first person is being held for a weapons charge, highly the second one is being held for murder. >> all right, let's hope somebody in the community comes forward with more information. thank you for that. the case of michelle le, the nursing student who has not been seen for a week and a half has gone from a missing concern's case to a homicide investigation. elizabeth cook has more from hayward. >> reporter: dana investigators say they believe they have enough evidence to conclude that michelle le was murdered. and they believe that somebody on purpose went after her. the family left the police station in tears after learning of new developments. michelle has not been seen for 11 days since leaving the

murdered, after looking at evidence and materials from the the garage. and the reward from any information on the whereabouts of michelle has grown to $60,000. and in a facebook page, dedicated to finding michelle, le's family say they do believe she is still alive. >> all right, elizabeth cook in hayward thank you. and there has been another violent attack on a popular walking and jogging trail. this time on a good samaritan who was trying to help a woman who was being bothered. it happened on the delta trail in pittsburgh. julia goodrich has more. >> reporter: this is the trail in pitsburgh, with curfew going until 5:00. police say that past curfew at 10:45 at night, a woman was held against her will by three suspects. a good samaritan tried to help her, and the suspects then told him "don't try to be a hero,
just go home." the suspects then grabbed the good samaritan, kicking him several times and even stabbed him. and just last week, a man was shot along the trail, the victim reportedly approached by four men on the trail. words were exchanged and then the victim was shot. so what has happened to the trail in your mind? is it just not safe? >> yeah, i wouldn't recommend anybody walk on it. >> it is like so long, and there are like no houses where you can run to if somebody does attack you. >> reporter: pittsburgh police say there have been several incidents last month along the trail. they are stepping up patrols and hope that anybody with information will come up with information on the attacks. >> other headlines now, we learned what may have started the house fire that killed two san francisco firefighters last week. the family that lived in the home say that sparks from the
vacuum cleaner started the curtains on fire. investigators won't confirm it. and representatives from the labor union parked an suv and draped it with a banner. they are willing to talk about salaries and benefits with san jose's budget problems but want to talk before the city council decides on wording for a ballot measure to ask voters to weigh in on pension reform. and jobs temporarily talked about at a developer's conference in san francisco. it stores your music and documents on the servers. jobs looked particularly thin and frail, and as soon as he took stage, stocks started to drop. and bay area population,

new york congressm that, a story: . you know that story he has been telling, right? well today a new york congressman said it was exactly that. a story. >> last friday night i tweeted a photograph of myself that i intended to send as a direct message as part of a joke to a woman in seattle. once i realized i had posted it to twitter, i panicked, took it down and said that i had been hacked. i then continued with that story to stick to the story which was a usually regrettable mistake. this woman was accidentally dragged into it and bears absolutely no responsibility. i am so sorry to have disrupted her life in this way. to be clear the picture was of me, and i sent it. >> the congressman also said he has exchanged sexually strong pictures with women over the years, he says he never met the women or had sexual relationships with him. he says he will not resign over
this or split up with his wife. hotel workers gathered in uniform today to send a message to a financial leader accused of attacking one of their own. dominique strauss-kahn appeared in court today at his arraignment, the french politician and former head of the imf pleaded not guilty to multiple criminal accounts, including attempted rape. sources tell them that the dna was found on the maid's hotel uniform. but his strategy will be that any sex is agreed to. his attorney says his client will testify. if convicted he faces 25 years in jail. and the california prison system is by many accounts a mess. it is so over crowded that the
supreme court ordered them to cut their inmate numbers. also at issue is a sex change operation for one inmate. more on a story from april. one family was so upset by that report that they asked to be heard. >> when i first heard that i was just sitting there thinking is he talking about my mom? >> reporter: renee and mcwilliams thought they put their mother's murder behind them, when they put lyralisa stevens behind bars. >> i said that is him, that is him. >> reporter: yes, him, 42-year- old lyralisa stevens was born a man, but lives as a woman. and is no stranger to headlines, the first 11 one years ago, when he used a shot gun to murder bonnie lewis over
a $400 clothing debt. stevens is now serving 50 years to life, and that is why she is making headlines again. because stevens is asking the court to mandate 50,000 be shelled out for sex surgery, arguing that she entered prison with silicon hips and breasts, and being built slightly, she is under threat of physical abuse. surgery would allow stevens to be transferred to a women's prison. >> it was totally wrong for you to take a person's mother from them. and then still want special privileges, whatever you get you deserve it. >> what lyralisa stevens has been getting behind bars is at the heart of this case. since 2003, the state of california has been spending more than a thousand a year for
hormone treatments for stevens. now add that up by many, and they are all receiving it, receiving treatment in vacaville. it is shocking, so we sat down with those who treated these transgender inmates, saying it is a disorder, medical. so hormone treatment is necessary. >> i would say it is medically necessary in the same way that breast reconstruction may be medically necessary for a woman who had surgery. >> reporter: the doctor treated more than 400 trans gender enmates, believing the state created this incident. >> well it is difficult to say, you're transitioned, we'll allow you to do that up to a certain point, but up to that point it is not considered medically necessary. >> reporter: in fact we found court documents showing a doctor now on staff with the department recommended the surgery for stevens, saying
that srs would have improved outcomes. this former inmate says she was once in steven's shoe. >> i went to prison to pay my debt to society, not to go to prison to be raped. that shouldn't be a part of the prison sentence. >> reporter: she describes the predators as other inmates. >> they don't give you special consideration for your safety. that is a big issue. >> reporter: and she claims the medical staff withholds hormone injections out of spite. >> they can basically veto anything an outside doctor says, you have to fight tooth and nail. >> reporter: but some in the prison system think it is all out of hand. >> i think it is kind of ridiculous, particularly the amount of money it will cost the taxpayers to do this type of surgery. >> reporter: joe bowman has been a guard for years, saying that the transgenders are using this incident as hormone activity. >> the fact that they violated
it on purpose, they come back to get medical treatment. >> reporter: the state declined an on-camera interview. but in court, documents argue that steven's care is adequate and meets constitutional standards, making the sex reassignment surgery unnecessary. lewis 's children couldn't agree more. >> you want the taxpayers to pay for your surgery, after you committed a murder? i don't think so. >> reporter: robert liles, cbs 5. >> and as robert mentioned the >> and as robert mentioned the case is ,,,,,,,,,,,,

degrees, the areas affected by the cloud cover, obviously the coolest. tomorrow, we'll see less rain out of the forecast, we'll start out on the gray side with cloud cover, even fog at the sea shore. now for your morning commute, numbers in the 40, 50s, you can leave the umbrella at home. but for the 7th day of june, you require the jacket. this is interesting. area of low pressure, watch this, moving to the northeast. but there, right behind it is a weak layer of trough -- right now it is roughly between a thousand and 1500 feet deep. so temperatures with the cloud cover, the 50s, and the beaches, the 40s in the inland areas. to the north of the golden gate bridge, we are affected by the marine layer, 56 in stenson beach, and 45 degrees for the outside number, in sonoma, 73 in concord with the sunshine. but really remain partly cloudy, and west winds 10-15 miles per hour along the coast.

including michael crabtree, was there, of course no contact with the head coach, it was a lockout, so smith becauses the de -- def act o head coach. >> we did everything today, it was like a practice today. i'm going to go back home, and try out for the washington wizards. >> yeah, we're getting closer and closer to the cut off point, exhibition season here on cbs 5. we'll see. >> interesting, i guess alex took control. >> yes, he was aggressive, he will speak for the first ,,,,,,,
